I'm wanting to make a web based configuration tool for my wireless routers
(setting up freebsd boxes to make a outdoor wlan) - ofcourse I can use ssh
and webmin, but the configuration should be made even easier for less
technical users.

I've read the how to use Webmin with apache, didnt quite folllow the
procedure, but bear with me..

chown scripts to root (chown -R root:root /var/www/cp)
chmod w/suid (chmod -R 755 /var/www/cp)

add -U flag to perl line, what does this do? is there a php knob like this?

chown the scripts back to www (chown -R www:www /var/www/cp)
chmod rwx to www (chmod -R 700 /var/www/cp)

or am I stuck with compiling apache with D_BIG_SECURITY_HOLE?
